SAL: There’s a lot of hooplah in the press right now about having a green Christmas - see the NYT article Jolly Green Christmas about the green evangelists set to sabotage the joy of giving for all and sundry. I’m thinking green this Christmas for sure, but I’m also not going to be dogmatic about it - show by example rather than by tirade is my motto. So with that in mind I’ve been saving all my Anthropologie tissue to use as wrapping paper, I’m avoiding vacuum-packed toys, and I’m on the lookout for gifts that are green and cool. Vivavi is run by the Josh Dorfman who many of you may know as the author of The Lazy Environmentalist. They have a lovely range of eco-friendly furniture that’s really beautiful. Perhaps a bit pricey for Christmas gifts, but there are some home accessories that are reasonable - such as these hemp Birch Accent Pillows for $100 from Loop Organic.
